National Young Leaders Day

National young leaders 2015

On June the 16th the leaders of HNP went on a bus to Palmerston North for National Young Leaders Day {NYLD}.

We had several different speakers that included: William Pike,Chris Jupp,Marcus Winter,Paul Blackwell,Sariyah Paitai,Phonix and Jamie Mcdell.

First was William Pike and he talked about his story.From every speaker there was a main thought and from William's story he said you need to have all passion no limits.

Next we had Chris Jupp and when he was at school he never got to be a school leader but at college he was asked to do the 40 hour famine which last year raised 44,000 dollars to go to Mongolia to help the poor and now every year Chris does the 40 hour famine to try raise more money.He said that we're not superheros but we have the power to change the world,so stand up for what you believe in.

The third speaker was Marcus Winter also called the sandman because of the art he does.If your wondering what type of art he does Marcus does sand art where you create a picture with sand then ruin it- it's amazing but this all started with him busking on the street. Marcus also showed us how to create your future and that "Only you can draw your future".

Three more speakers to go and we have already had morning tea,time fly's fast when your having fun.In between some speakers we had games questions,songs and then its lunch.Me and the other leaders head up to the photo booth and get some pictures.We then go and get some photos with the speakers and ask them to sign our little books that we got from the people at the door.After that we all headed back and 5 minutes before the host came back on stage some songs started and everyone started dancing and singing - it was really cool.

Then we had Paul Blackwell and he told us "not to let anyone get in your way,dare to dream."

We then had the performance we had all been waiting for JAMIE MCDELL,she then told everyone how she became a performer.She sang us some songs and then said "Choose who you want to listen to."

Then it was time to go home with my bag on my back,I hoped onto the bus and on the way back we watched Big Hero 6 on the little TV,We played on our devices than we were home at 4:30.It was a really fun day.
